Theory of the Viscosity of Dense Gases and Liquids
Under the heading of theory, we wish to summarize briefly and without detailed reference to the complicated mathematics involved, those theories of momentum transfer in dense fluids which are based on molecular theory in a rigorous or at least modelized way. Various different approaches widely differing in rigour, mathematical complexity, and practical utility are considered and the presentation is grouped under the subheadings referred to as: rigorous statistical mechanical theories, corresponding states theories and model theories.
